I grew up in Chelsea as did my parents. We are all Chelsea Graduates and have been around the Vinita area my entire life. I went Kindergarten thru 12th Grade at Chelsea public schools. I was very active in sports, my church and the community.
After I graduated I went into the insurance industry and decided that it was going to be my career. I went to work for Wilcox & Jones, Inc based out of Tulsa and they also had a Vinita office ran by Dennis M. Jones at that time. I started out there mainly doing processing and working in the mailroom then went on the get my Property and Casualty agent license. Several years later I added Life, Accident and Health lines to my current agent license. So now I’m a fully licensed insurance agent and can help out in any way. I specialize in personal lines such as home, auto, boat, motorcycle, farms and ranches. I can help out with your commercial insurance as well from large to small.
I went on to work for Wilcox & Jones for 15 years before I moved away to Durant. Once I moved back I did go back to working in Tulsa at another insurance agency but got led back to Dennis M. Jones Insurance Agency/McGregor Insurance Group after a few years. I have since moved back to Chelsea and work full time at RCI Insurance Group.
I believe that everyone should do an insurance review with their agent at least once a year. Sometimes we add things or make changes and don’t think that it will make a difference in our insurance premiums but it can and sometimes even give you a discount. A certain type of roof will give you a discount on your homeowners, a monitored alarm, all these things can attribute to several discounts. Maybe you’ve remodeled your home lately but haven’t told your agent. If you have a claim on your home but didn’t update the value of your house with your current agent then you aren’t getting what the value of your house is worth with the updates.
I have 28 years of insurance experience and would love to sit down and do a free insurance review with anyone who would like to make sure that they are adequately covered.
I was a Wish Grantor with Make A Wish Oklahoma for 7 years and was very passionate about the families that I helped. I also enjoy volunteering at the John 3:16 mission in downtown Tulsa. I love to help out and give back as much as I can.
